We Love Being Spontaneous

We woke up on Saturday Morning and here is how the conversation went. "Do we have anything going on today? Nope. What do you want to do? I don't know. What do you want to do? I don't know." Five minutes of silence, then "Shall we go to Idaho? Oh gosh, I don't know. Well, I think it might be kinda fun, I think I would like to go." Five more minutes of silence. "Let's get up and go. OK. "

There you have it. 45 minutes later we were on the road heading to Rexburg. On our way there, we called Darren to make sure it would be OK (as Curtis and Shandy were already up there visiting). We also called Pecks on the way and asked if we could spend the night with them. Everyone seemed happy we were on our way.... Good thing or we would have had to turn around and come home.

Here we are, loading the car for the trip.
Here is Ethan and Jacob. It was Jacob's birthday, so we got to celebrate his 2nd b'day with him.

And, as usual, cooking something to eat! Darren and I did the cooking, and I might say it was awesome. We had chicken and vegetables and pineapple. The best thing were the tomatoes, cut in half and topped with garlic salt, fresh basil, and parmesan cheese.

Summertime Backyard

Here are some random shots of the back yard, thought I would give you something to look at besides food. It has been so blasted hot here in SLC it's a miracle we have been able to keep anything alive. There is no end to the heat wave we are having in the near future. I guess on the positive note, when it is below freezing in January and I am getting rid of the snow off the driveway, I can look back to July and wish it was a bit warmer. Whatever!

Here is the side yeard ont he East. You can't see it, but we have a "baby" nectarine tree with three nectarines on it.

Tin Foil Dinners Aren't Just for Camping!

Another "food blog" from the Clark/Sweet clan. Tin foil dinners on the barbecue grill are superb! We each made our own, and they were masterpieces! Fresth pineapple slices sprinkled with brown sugar then grilled are to die for!! (In this first photo you also get a great glimpse of the "Bell thumbs!") Anyway, a great time was had by all.

Wheeler Farm

As you can tell from Carrie's blog, Wheeler Farm is a favorite! After Parker's "Cars" party, we checked out the ducks, geese, turkeys, pigs, horses, cows and rabbits!
